    Table Of Contents - Wrong ordering bug? Indesign V5.5

    gallusbreeks

      Attached is a an indesign document. It consists of a TOC and two articles. The articles have a title and two sub titles.

       

      The articles flow into linked text frames.

       

      The weird possible bug is that the TOC should read

       

      Contents

       

      Article Title - A  1
        Subtitle-A No1 1
        Subtitle-A No2 2

       

      Article Title - B 2
        Subtitle-B No1 3
        Subtitle-B No2 5

       

       

      but it actually reads

       

      Contents

       

      Article Title - A  1
        Subtitle-A No1 1

       

      Article Title - B 2
        Subtitle-A No2 2
        Subtitle-B No1 3
        Subtitle-B No2 5

       

       

      However if the final text frame of article A (coloured red in linked file) is made small enough to create an overset warning the table of contents generates correctly. ie

       

      Contents

       

      Article Title - A  1
        Subtitle-A No1 1
        Subtitle-A No2 2

       

      Article Title - B 2
        Subtitle-B No1 3
        Subtitle-B No2 5

       

      Any help appreciated as whether this is a bug or I'm laying my document wrongly.

       

      I can work around it with hidden layers or leaving the text overset but it doesn't seem it should be neccessary.

       

      Thanks
